Big and slow: phylogenetic estimates of molecular evolution in baleen whales (suborder mysticeti).
Baleen whales are the largest animals that have ever lived. To develop an improved estimation of substitution rate for nuclear and mitochondrial DNA for this taxon, we implemented a relaxed-clockExpand

Are Antarctic minke whales unusually abundant because of 20th century whaling?
Severe declines in megafauna worldwide illuminate the role of top predators in ecosystem structure. In the Antarctic, the Krill Surplus Hypothesis posits that the killing of more than 2 million largeExpand

Urinary Chemokines CXCL9 and CXCL10 Are Noninvasive Markers of Renal Allograft Rejection and BK Viral Infection
Renal transplant recipients require periodic surveillance for immune‐based complications such as rejection and infection. Noninvasive monitoring methods are preferred, particularly for children, forExpand

Decline in local abundance of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand
Regional populations of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) around New Zealand are genetically isolated from each other and the species was recently classified as nationally endangered based onExpand

Neglect of genetic diversity in implementation of the convention on biological diversity.
Genetic diversity is the foundation for all biological diversity; the persistence and evolutionary potential of species depend on it. World leaders have agreed on the conservation of geneticExpand

Whales from space: Four mysticete species described using new VHR satellite imagery
Large-bodied animals such as baleen whales can now be detected with very high resolution (VHR) satellite imagery, allowing for scientific studies of whales in remote and inaccessible areas whereExpand

45 – Historical Seismicity and Tectonics: The Case of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East
This chapter explores how historical evidences can be used to address some fundamental questions about earthquakes and understanding of their activity. It mainly considers studies of the seismicityExpand

Species tree of a recent radiation: the subfamily Delphininae (Cetacea, Mammalia).
Lineages undergoing rapid radiations provide exceptional opportunities for studying speciation and adaptation, but also represent a challenge for molecular systematics because retention of ancestralExpand

Abundance of humpback whales in Oceania using photo-identification and microsatellite genotyping
Estimating the abundance of long-lived, migratory animals is challenging but essential for managing populations. We provide the first abundance estimates of endangered humpback whales MegapteraExpand

Global diversity and oceanic divergence of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae)
Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) annually undertake the longest migrations between seasonal feeding and breeding grounds of any mammal. Despite this dispersal potential, discontinuousExpand
